Quilled easter cross

I made this quilled cross with a tutorial I found at Suganthi's (DAYDREAMS) blog where she used a comb to make petals. I did not have a special quilling comb so I used my normal hair comb! I made three identical petals and made the fourth one longer then glued them together to make a cross. I made some folded paper roses ( roses tutorial here) to add color. Lastly I stamped the sentiments and glued it on. Hope you like my card.

This technique is very easy and well explained at Suganthi's blog. She makes really neat cards and quilled jewelery with amazing photo's and tutorials. Do pop in and see her amazing work.
 I made this card for a special friend of mine I hope she likes it.
